Anti-Paparazzi Bag

CNET News:

If I were a popular Hollywood celebrity, chances are the paparazzi would be staking out my house and jotting down notes on what I had for lunch.

Alas for commoners like me, Adam Harvey’s invention won’t do much.

Harvey, a New York University graduate, conceived a fashion bag that can help scandal-stricken stars steer clear of the spotlight.

His Anti-Paparazzi Clutch Bag includes a small microcontroller, LED lights, and a sensor that detects bright flashes from external sources.

When the clutch detects a flash, it responds by activating the LEDs which, in theory, will over-expose the paparazzi’s shot (see above picture for an example). But this will probably work effectively only at night.
